    If it was possible 2 relive your life, would U?
    Your past steps could be retraced...
    U wouldn't re-make the same mistakes...
    U wouldn't have 2 endure the hardships that you've previously faced.
    U'd have a chance 2 befriend any enemies that were made.
    All the loved ones U've lost, U could see them everyday
    & tell them how much they're loved.

    If U could relive your life, would U change your present?
    Instead of squandering all the money u've made, U could invest it.
    Or keep that good job cuz U'll know what day U'll get tested...
    And know that UA Flush doesn't always work as U expected.
    Would U mess with that person U had your child with?
    Refrain from drinking strong drink cuz when u're drunk, U're at your wildest?
    While it's at the front of your mind, if U could relive your life,
    Would U commit the same crimes, even though U weren't caught?

    But while you're thinking, remember that the lives we lived is what makes us unique.
    Some wouldn't be as mentally strong if they never ran the streets.
    U wouldn't be blessed with the presence of your seed(s).
    If U didn't have the past bad relationships, U wouldn't get that one U need.
    Even though your lifes been rough, U're still heading towards the future.
    Your past acts mold your present acts so U don't act the way U used 2.
    Or U shouldn't, cuz U've grown.
    Even though noones future is known,
    It still holds the possibility of being a reward.

    Love Life.

    You know Positive, I wrote a piece questioning life decisions made quite a few months ago, but I left it open ended, I didn't put the uplifting spin on it that you did. And what I remember most about it, was your response. To paraphrase, you said that you would live your life the same, because everything that went into it, brought you to where you are now. I applauded you then, as I applaud you, now. Wow....

    Thank U 4 the feel, fam. This came 2 me yesterday after I overheard someone saying that their life was "sh!tty", but I believe that if U're living & healthy, it can't be all that bad. Everyone can stand a little change in their lives.
